Litigation Secretary Job Description

Certification is not a mandatory requirement to become a litigation secretary, although most firms prefer that job candidates have some formal education or prior work experience. Legal Secretaries are increasingly opting for certifications which has given rise to employment opportunities in this area. The National Association for Legal Professionals (NALS) bestows an ALS designation upon legal secretaries who pass a four-hour, three-part examination. Legal Secretaries can offer their services in various areas like corporate, real estate, banking, litigation, labor, intellectual property, tax, etc. Litigation Secretaries assist lawyers and sometimes paralegals through the performance of various secretarial and clerical duties requiring knowledge of legal terminology and the legal process. They assist the lawyers with typing, filing, working with briefs, motions and pleadings, answering phone calls, and setting up appointments. Litigation secretaries work in a variety of office environments including legal firms, government agencies, courts, companies and legal aid departments. Communicating with clients, law firm partners, judges, judicial workers, court administrators and other law firm staff is an important part of their duty. Strong knowledge of court deadlines for trial is absolutely essential as, missing any of them can cost the attorneys a big time. Excellent organizational and verbal skills, knowledge of court rules, discovery and trial preparation, calendaring and filing procedures, and strong computer skills (Microsoft Office XP, IManage, ProLaw) are required. Typing skills, know how to prepare legal documents and understanding of legal terminology are all required to be successful. Litigation work is often stressful and may require overtime. Litigation Secretaries need to be assertive as they are required to work in an environment where they have to deal with aggressive, high-powered attorneys and work in constant conflict in an adversarial environment. Flexibility is absolutely critical to become a litigation secretary.
